    Throw in enough symbolism to choke an English-lit major and you have a film challenge that too often feels like a chore.

    Toronto Star

    October 16, 2009

    If Arriaga had allowed us to spend more time with the key characters in this extended tragedy, or had spent some time punching up the plot, The Burning Plain might have had a chance.

    Possibly the stories fit too neatly. If so, it's hardly a fatal flaw.

    Detroit News

    It's serious stuff, intended for serious movie people. The only problem is, serious movie people have already been there, done that.

    The result is confusion, not catharsis.

    Minneapolis Star Tribune

    September 25, 2009

    The film is strikingly photographed and intensely acted, but the tone is overwrought melodrama.

    Critic's Notebook

    October 07, 2015

    If you are willing to turn a blind eye to the inherently hackneyed nature of "The Burning Plain," though, the film turns out to be somewhat rewarding.

    What's that smell? The plain isn't the only thing that's charred in screenwriter Guillermo Arriaga's directorial debut; subtlety goes up in flames too.

    What Culture

    March 13, 2011

    Deep-seated emotional problems are examined in a complex movie that, as ever with Arriaga, refuses to fit into a straightforward narrative.

    Las Vegas CityLife

    Knowing ... that it's a 20-year old story, one can only conclude the idea behind the film would have been best left unfilmed, an unfinished step toward greater things.

    Arriaga's multi-narrative format got the best of him. Rather than deliver a sense of shock and awe, it's swallowed up by complexity, leaving you to wonder, "This is it?"
